English to Speakers of Other Languages

This program is designed to give beginning, non-native speakers of English the survival skills needed for school and real-world communication. Students build fluency in language skills primarily in listening and speaking formats, are introduced to the foundations of English phonics and syntax, and construct academic reading and writing skills.  Inter-disciplinary academic vocabulary is stressed for the purpose of building the foundations of vocabulary and understanding their other coursework. Diverse genres of literature and literary devices are studied; and students will complete leveled reading assignments. Writing for various purposes will be composed, revised, and edited.
